lucy and jonathan

Wow... wow... wow.... wow.... I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this wedding. The beautiful young bride Lucy... (you might remember the talented little lady from this post) and her gorgeous man Jonathan (or Jonna) had a gorgeous blessing delivered by Lucy's Grandad in the stunning garden of Thornbury Castle in South Gloucestershire.
Lucy wore a gorgeous strapless, fishtail cream dress with beautiful vintage accessories and Jonathan wore a fantastic tweed suit with a knitted blue tie. Their colour scheme was just incredible with Lucy's bridesmaids in gorgeous peacock green dresses with red shoes and accessories and the boys in tweed with red ties and peacock feather boutonnieres.
After the ceremony an amazing dinner was served in one of their Tudor halls and I'm sorry but I challenge anyone to top the amazingly original table decoration that was all hand-made by Lucy and a friend (told ya she was talented)... we just couldn't get enough (hence the mammoth amount of photos). The speeches were heartfelt and there was a particularly funny speech from the three 'best men' which finished with an interesting rendition of 'Love and Marriage!'
The wedding cake was replaced by an assortment of mini cheesecakes, mousse and eton mess (to die for) and then everyone finished the afternoon out on the lawn with a spot of croquet and archery!
The evening reception was held at Tortworth Court Four Pillars Hotel and the night was spent dancing and of course... the Photo Booth! Perfect.
I had a fabulous day and it was made even better by having the totally amazing Joanna Brown as my Second shooter. Joanna is a true artist and I am totally in love with her work so it is such an honour to have her work alongside me... go check out her stuff (but before you do just have a look below....I will warn you that there are quite a few photos so you might want to get a brew or something.... I just couldn't leave any out!).....
